When you think about it we've all been smoking for several years, and we've done this 10, 20, 30, 40 times a day.
Although nicotine withdrawal only lasts 72hrs to stop something we have done frequently for so long must be a shock to the system.
A child can be quite persistent when wanting to get its own way, for example it can start whith asking progressing to whinging, crying, feet stamping , full blown paddying, head banging and holding breath untill they turn blue the list goes on. Our bodies are doing the same, we are creatures of comfort and habit and we have taken ourselves out of our comfort zone and our bodies and mind are acting like the child who wants to get their own way and is doing anything it can to take us back to our old habits, and like the child if we ignore and don't give in, it will eventually calm down and start behaving.
I've been having flash backs or outta body experiences lol, I can see myself going into the shop and buying a pack of fags, I've never experienced anything like it and its very difficult to properly explain, I have to remind myself that I don't smoke and I will not be going into the shop !!
My hubbie is happy one minute, miserable the next, energetic one minute a complete arse the next all in the space of about 10 minutes and he's finding that hard to cope with.
Remind yourself every day why you enjoy being a non smoker, for me I'm a very independent person and I am glad that I am no longer controlled by nicotine, I like how my hands smell of hand wash or hand cream, I like how my daughter is happy that we have given up and I love that when i open my purse I actually have the tenner in there that was there 3-4 days ago
Be strong, we are at the same stage I'm on day 21
